Elliðaárdalur Valley


Located in the middle of the city, this unlikely—but beloved—green spot is where locals come to find inner city peace. Explore the winding forest paths lined with wildflowers, catch a glimpse of frolicking wild rabbits, wade in the splashing river for salmon-spotting and look up to the skies for greylag geese, mallard and the gold Eurasian siskin.
